- The impact of the Latino youth electoral participation. Between 2004 and 2008, the turnout of eligible Latino voters age 18-24 increased from 33% to 39%, and in 2008, one in seven Latino voters was in that age group. Latino youth represent a major part of the nation’s future population and its electorate. By the 2012 election, approximately 2.4 million more U.S.-born Latinos will be over18 years old than in the 2008 election.
- The participation of Latino native-born and naturalized citizen voters. Typically, Latino
naturalized citizens have higher turnout rates than the Latino native-born. In 2008, 54% of Latino naturalized citizens cast ballots, compared to 48% of the native-born.
